Volume 61 / Social Sciences

ECONOMICS: CUBA


JORGE F. PÉREZ-LÓPEZ, U.S. Department of Labor, Washington, D.C.


STATISTICAL INFORMATION on the performance of the Cuban economy continues to be published regularly by agencies of the Cuban government. Notable are a comprehensive statistical yearbook published by the Oficina Nacional de Estadísticas (item #bi2004001309#) and an annual report published by the Banco Central de Cuba (item #bi2004000500#).

A new trend in the literature is the publication of several collections of essays written by Cuban economists associated with the Universidad de la Habana and those associated with government-sponsored thinks tanks (items #bi2004001315#, #bi2004001307#, and #bi2004001318#). Notable among these are the proceedings of an annual conference on the Cuban economy sponsored by the Centro de Estudios de la Economía Cubana (item #bi2004001318#). Also of note is that one of the collections of essays has been published in English and therefore is accessible to a larger audience (item #bi2004001307#).

Finally, several books and collections of essays dealing with the problems and challenges of the agricultural sector have appeared recently. Noteworthy among these—and critical for understanding the ongoing restructuring of the sugar industry—is Alvarez and Peña Castellanos' Cuba's Sugar Industry (item #bi2004000499#). Other contributions examine the export potential of the agricultural economy (item #bi2003005201#), as well as organizational changes in and performance of the agricultural sector (items #bi2004001314#, #bi2004001317#, and #bi2004001304#).
